    Loud.

    I—Dimity—just found this post hidden away. I don't even remember writing it, but so little has changed. Except now my son has a keyboard.

Spinning the Wheel

Spinning the Wheel

 

Pat Sajak soothes me these days. Yes, that Pat Sajak, the one with the uplifted face and oh-so-nutty sense of humor. The one who offers to give the Wheel one final spin and bestows vacations to exotic places like the Mexican Riveria.

Wheel of Fortune is on at 6:30 at my house, which is the perfect time to unplug from the day and plug into the tube: homework is done, dinner is over, and the kids (and I) have reached that tiredness tipping point where if I try to crank up the productivity, I’ll just waste time on Facebook and if they try to do anything together, it’ll end in snippiness and tattling…

It’s All about [Work-Life] Balance

Sarah and Dimity kick off their now weekly podcasts (yes, we’ll now be coming to you every week instead of every other!) by talking to Michelle Jezycki, a triathlete extraordinaire. This Hyland’s Masters athlete talks about thriving on, rather than merely surviving, the emotional rollercoaster of a race. The ladies also discuss work-life balance, debating whether all things can ever really be equal. And find out what fitness element SBS has finally added into her training.

If you’re digging our podcasts, we’d be super-grateful if you’d take a minute (because we *know* you have so many to spare!) to write a review on iTunes…

Ready For It: Taking on the TLAM 26.2 Own It Plan

Ready For It: Taking on the TLAM 26.2 Own It Plan

“I don’t know how you do it—run long distance,” a friend’s husband says to me as we’re about to leave a holiday dinner at their house. “I just can’t run very long without feeling like I’m going to puke,” he says.

Our conversation is less about whether running is good for you—he’s a great guy and readily acknowledges its mental and physical benefits—and more about how some of us like shorter distances while others, like me, prefer going long. (Chris confides he’d much rather sprint, even if it does sometimes, for him, result in a queasy stomach: “I like a quick and intense workout, then I’m done…

Tell Me Friday: How To Lay Confidence-Building Bricks

Tell Me Friday: How To Lay Confidence-Building Bricks

 

So this Ironman thing? Tough.
There isn’t a workout where somewhere in the middle of it, I go into math mode: I’m 45 minutes into a bike workout, and think to myself, “If I were in the race, I’m still swimming right now. And then I have 112 miles to bike. And then just 26.2 miles to run.”

Some days, I get super excited by that thought–bring it, Coeur d’Alene!–and other days, not so much (bring your booty over to that couch and watch Nashville on demand!)

I still get nervous before most races of any distance or sport, but I’m 99% sure, barring flat bike tires, runners trots and other natural disasters, I’ll see the finish line…

Follow This Mother!

Mindy Bobe, a.k.a. Road Runner Girl, is heading to Walt Disney World this weekend for the Disney Marathon. It’s a girls’ weekend for this Daphne, Ala. mom of two boys—Hayden and Sawyer—and Mindy, 34, will don a Snow White costume for the occasion. Also running 26.2 with her are her fellow BRF “princesses” Cinderella, Belle, Pocahontas, and Tinkerbell. Says Mindy of the event (her second marathon and not her first Disney race, by the way): “The only goal I have for this race is to have a blast! We plan on running, laughing, and taking lots of pictures on the race course!”

Best recent run: The best run I’ve had recently was an 18-miler about a month ago…
